Raisong the curtains on a fresh dining experience at Taki Taki with the launch of Omakase – an all new menu that reimagines the ethos of Japanese Cuisine led by the new expat Chef Bobby. This menu takes a bold new direction for the Modern Japanese dining scene in Mumbai. 

Omakase perfectly encapsulates Taki Taki’s philosophy of elevating the ethos of the familiar authentic Japanese with contemporary techniques, ingredients & gastronomical curiosity.

He then ventured into Bahrain, Qatar, Turkey, Kuwait, and India, spearheading various Pan-Asian restaurants with finesse and innovation. His tenure at esteemed establishments like the Marriott Hotel.
